Hackney Labour has selected Philip Glanville to be Labour’s candidate in the by-election to replace Jules Pipe as Mayor.

Jules is standing down to be Sadiq Khan’s deputy Mayor for planning, regeneration and skills after fourteen years of dedicated service as Mayor. In that time Hackney has been transformed from the worst local authority in the country to one of the best; improving schools, building homes and making a difference to the lives of our most vulnerable residents. Hackney Labour would like to wish Jules every success in his new role at City Hall.

After ten years as a Councillor in Hoxton West, and six years as Cabinet Member for Housing and now Deputy mayor, Phil is standing to be Mayor to fight to make Hackney better, fairer and more sustainable. He is a dedicated campaigner who believes in the power of politics to change people’s lives. He has an excellent record from helping residents at the New Era estate in their battle against eviction, to confronting the Government about their unfair Housing Bill, but could do so much more as Mayor.

There will be door knocking sessions across the borough in the run up to polling day on September 15th, which will be advertised on our events page.

This is an excellent opportunity for us to engage with our supporters and residents to listen to their local concerns and ideas, and communicate what Labour hopes to achieve in the future for Hackney and its residents.

Make sure you’re registered to vote, or call Hackney Electoral Services on 020 8356 3232. If you have any questions about the campaign, please contact megan@hackney-labour.org.uk.

Thanks for your continued support.

The Mayor of Hackney, Jules Pipe CBE, the first directly elected Mayor of the London Borough of Hackney has announced that he will be resigning from his position at the end of this month, after being appointed Deputy Mayor of London for Planning, Regeneration and Skills.

“This is an amazing opportunity to serve our city, but the decision to leave was not an easy one to make. It’s been an enormous privilege to serve the residents of Hackney for two decades and I’m proud of everything the Council has achieved;  the transformation of our schools, the clean streets, the new homes, a decade of frozen Council Tax, award-winning services, making a difference to the lives of our most vulnerable residents.

“I’ve been fortunate to be surrounded by a dedicated team of councillors, and I’d like to thank you, and of course Hackney’s residents, for their support over my 20 years at Hackney including 14 years as Mayor. Leading Hackney on its journey from the worst local authority in the country to one of the best will always be something of which I will be very proud.  Hackney is a unique place. It represents the very best of London, and I hope that from City Hall I can continue to make a difference here. I know that under my successor, whoever that may be, you will all continue to serve this place and its communities with commitment, loyalty, creativity and hard work.”

Cllr Philip Glanville, will fulfil the functions of the position from that point until a new Mayor is elected. A Mayoral election is expected to be held in September.

Hackney Labour are delighted to introduce our candidate for the Hackney Central by-election, Sophie Conway!

Sophie was born and raised in Hackney Central, and went to Gayhurst Community School in Hackney, where her daughter also attended.

She works as a youth advocate for a children’s charity and a Parent Governor at a Hackney School, previously volunteering for Young Hackney where she worked with young offenders in the borough. 

 

Sophie Conway:

"Hackney is my home and I am honoured to be running for election in a place that I know so well and hold so dear. As a single parent, living in social housing in the borough I am acutely aware of the impact that Tory austerity is having on our community and the issues that people are struggling with.   As your Councillor I will make sure that I listen toyour views and concerns and take action."
